Beer and cigars - two things that the more you learn, the more you realize how little you really know. Both are fun hobbies that hold tons of secrets and will keep your interest for decades

For what it's worth, I take solace in having overcome the many challenges I faced in my quest to make good homemade beer. Finally, I am in a place where I am confident in my processes, have "mastered" the fundamentals of what is needed to make the best product I can from available resources and get back to a place where I can just enjoy beer.

IF you are legitimately into the hobby, I think it's more likely that you will hit a wall when life prevents you from brewing. I was brewing two to three times a month from October 2009 through March of this year, but work got a bit out of hand and forced me to stop brewing. With any luck, I'll be doing a double extract batch brew this weekend to reestablish my pipeline and then get back into the rhythm.

I feel you I had tons of work this summer and there was amost three weeks in August where I was not able to brew and it felt terrible. And yes I´m way into this hobby/obsession I´ve been chasing making my own beer for years.
This came to me mind cause I´ve seen people selling their equipment for different reasons and it made me think what will happend to me in the next years... Probably it was very important for them and then they stop brewing... If it happened to them why not to me too?
Yeah I´m brewing all I can after that little period of me not brewing and three of my friends spending two weeks holidays at home mi pipeline took some damage, but it´s again reviving I already have two pales ales bottled (18 gallons) for almost two weeks now, and IPA that I´m bottling on Monday, a Tripel that is in secondary for 10 days now and a Christmas winter warmer (I know I´ve brew it too late) that´s just finish primary... And again I´m brewing on Tuesday not sure what but I think I´ll use the cake from the Christmas to make a Quad.

I am, somewhat, close to this. Sort of.

I began brewing almost 6 years ago. Built a few of my own keggle based systems and decided one day to throw down on a pilot system. Never once have I had any intention of going pro. Never once have I had the desire to work at a brewery aside from needing a jobby job for extra income.

I bough knowing full well that I'd not be brewing weekly, or even monthly. By that time I had learned my limits, likes, and habits. In fact, the last batch of beer I brewed was in November 2011. Why? No time and I have a full pipeline to slowly drink through.

Still, I invested thousands into a pilot system because I knew that I'd be making beer the rest of my life and i wanted to have something taht could be handed down to any one of my children if they desire it.

All very nice answers! God I love this forum! You guys have no idea here in Spain even that the craft beer and hombrewing movement it´s starting to gain more and more adepts it can certainly get very lonely, I´m the only one in my city that brews (far as I know) and been able to talk to some guys/girls here with a lot more experience than me it´s a great gift thank you all

I can't imagine ever tiring of it. Besides the fact that there is always something to learn or try, even if I did know everything and could make perfect beer everytime, I LOVE brewing. The act of it. Not the learning, the doing. I feel about brew day the same way I do about going to see a great music show. Or playing my guitar. I mean I love learning but mostly its the doing that has me hooked. Plus I like to drink something I make. Kind of how I get more satisfaction out of eating vegetables I raised, meat I raised or killed hunting, eggs from my chickens, etc. It pleases me more to drink beer I made. the only reason I drink oter beer is that a. I am away from home, and b. to try to understand beers better to know what I want to brew. I never foresee brewing getting old with me.

It's my summer hobby, but my winter free time occupation.

I'll brew a few times in the summer, but in fall and winter I go all out. Most times I'll do enough brewing in the winter to last most of the summer. To me every thing in brewing is easier in the winter, except holding mash temps, but that's easy enough to overcome. My basement stays right at 60 to 62 deg, so it's like a giant ferm chamber, and about right for almost any style.

Do a garden and grow hops in the summer, brew and age in the winter.....The circle of life

I think that with a hobby like this, there are so many different methods and correct ways to do things and improve, u'll never quite lose the interest lol
